Are You Feeling Stressed?


Then you need a pack of "relaxation inducing" GABA Chocolate "for people working in stressful environments" by Glico :



Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a non-essential amino acid that is required as an inhibitory neruotransmitter to prevent nerve cell over-firing. It can induce calmness, particularly in individuals who are highly agitated.

These chocolatey balls of goodness are available in milk or bitter chocolate. I prefer the bitter chocolate you can see above.

    MMmmm that's a good one but my fave Japanese chocolates have to be "Asse" and "Horn". Japan-ophiles will know that I am not making the names up.

    Therapy that tastes good - I like it! Why doesn't the US have these? There are a lot of highly agitated people over here. I would think this would be a perfect market for these goodies.

    Very pithy Elsa :) There's heaps of products here with added amino acids!

    Liz: "Gabba gabba we accept you we accept you one of us..." Thanks for reminding me of a great tune!

    Carolyn: I was surprised to read that Japan is currently ahead of the rest of the world in supplementing foods with amino acids! I'm not sure how much good these things actually do - but it's a great marketing tool :D

    MF: Your precise number made me LOL, maybe it's DC who needs them rather than you?!

    You have chocolate, we have Starbucks. There are so many people who instantly look for a Starbucks once they get off the Beltway. My office has the regular and decaf Starbucks coffe for sale in the cafeteria. None of the frothy or flavored ones, but if you need a quick coffee fix, they have it.

    Stress reducing chocolate, what a novel idea!
